This special issue features a symposium of writers responding to the question Why Believe in God? The editors of Image envisioned this not as a rebuttal in the dryly argumentative style of the so-called New Atheists, but as a way of allowing writers and artists to address the question through intuition and imagination. The symposium (also available by itself in book form) contains reflections from poets B.H. Fairchild and Martha Serpas, fiction writers Doris Betts and Ron Hansen, essayist Richard Rodriguez, filmmaker Wim Wenders, songwriter Linford Detweiler (of Over the Rhine), and more. Plus, poetry by Ilya Kaminsky, a conversation with Walter Brueggemann, fiction by A.G. Mojtabai, the art of Barry Krammes, and much more.
